  1. For the past 2 years I've been trying to complete my computer science IA based on very little support from my teacher. The class had never been taught how to code properly and more importantly how to make databases and make http requests. After lot's of struggle I have a quite poor Android Studio application that meets few success criteria of the client. I'm wondering If even with a detailed criterion B and planning stage I could get decent marks? The teacher gave the impression that without a perfectly functioning and complex programme that we would fail so all of my efforts have been to
  2. Hi y'all! I have been in this IB course from late August 2017 till now (early November) and I'm failing most of my quiz and tests Here are my marks for each subject: Physics HL: Level 3 (35%) Geography HL: Level 4 (40%) English LL HL: (50%) Chinese LL SL: Level 2-3 (11/20 for my most recent test) Maths SL: Level 2-3 Business SL: (9/20 for most recent test) What should I do at this point I'm kinda worried and skeptical for the next 2 years of my IB course Should I switch to AP or A-Levels, or should I retake first year of IB
  3. Hello my friends in misfortune who started or already doing or even finished IB. I'm a bit dead now as I've done almost 2 years and 2 months away from the finish. Got good offers from top UK unis, planning on doing film studies, it was all good. Just got a piece of information that the supervisor and coordinator are almost completely sure that my EE would fail. They had a formal meeting with me where they asked me tricky questions like "when was the interview", "how does your interviewee looked like" etc. and got a conclusion that there is a serious concern of academic dishonesty. Sorry,
  4. Hey guys! I just started IB1 and i’m having my mock exams soon. I’m finding IB hard (Because im not naturally intelligent) and I keep doubting myself. So many people in my school are redoing IB1 and I’m scared to see myself in that situation. The subjects i’m taking are quite difficult. HL Chem & SL maths AA especially my question is, suppose I dont get the requirements needed to be promoted to IB2, Will I be forced to redo IB1 or will i have the opportunity to resit some exams and do extra work during the summer?
  5. For our internal assessments (e.g. Biology), will you fail IB if you don't do in-text citations, but you did do the works cited at the end? I have a whole list of works cited on the last page but no in-text citations throughout it. It is difficult to go back and find each sentence to in-text citate it. In-text citations are a pain and it's giving me anxiety! Please help! Thank you very much!
  6. okay.. so I failed the ib because I was caught with plagiarism in my theatre arts portfolio and I also did not acheive minimum marks to pass.. I was accepted to a performing arts uni, and luckily i did not sign up for the ib to send my final results to my uni. I didnt care about getting my ib diploma, but now my school wants to withdraw my upper school (high school) diploma... so now I feel doomed.. and i kind of dont get why they want to withdraw my high school diploma, but i get it at the same time. what should i do? will my school notify (tell) my uni that i was accepted into? omg.. dying l
  7. Ok, I honestly doubt that anyone will even see this, but I’m really worried... Im in 7th grade IB, and I wasn’t in IB in Elementary, so I’m a complete newbie, and I don’t know the rules all that well. We’re about to finish up the first semester, and I’m failing two of my classes. First quarter it was just one class but now it’s two. I’m only failing because i haven’t turned in almost any of my assignments, and I’m barely realizing how bad that effected my grade now. I know a student that got kicked out of the program, so I know that it’s possible to get kicked out and not just
  8. I am currently in my first semester of grade 11's and am getting 3's rather than straight 7's in all my subjects. Is it alright if I'm failing most of my subjects for my first semester? I have taken the subjects HL Maths, HL Physics, HL Comp Sci, SL Bus & Man, SL Eng Lang Lit, and SL Spanish B. Will I ever improve or am I also going to fail my IB exams in May of 2020?
  9. Guys yesterday we had to submit in our EE's and today I realized that I did the word count wrong (included the citations but not the titles) and also did my citations wrong (I didn't include the page numbers of the books)! what do I do??
  10. I submitted 1200 words TOK essay four days later (Aug 28, 2018) after the deadline. This deadline is not the ib deadline but its what the teacher set. The teacher was okay with me submitting four days late because the majority of the students did not submitted on the deadline. However, today Aug 30, 2018, I decide to submit reworked TOK Essay, specifically changing the introduction, evidence used and 200 more words, then I uploaded to the candidate ib website. The teacher was not okay with me reworking on the essay and told me to submit the previous one, so he rejected my essay I uploaded on t

    Hi I just got my IB grades and it is really ****ed up. I got 11 points on my HL's, which means I am not passing. The problem is the marks I am missing in my HL subjects to reach the next grade boundaries are a lot, 8 marks minimum. So, I am wondering what is the maximum marks someone has gone up by? Because 8 or 9 marks more sounds kind off unrealistic.
  12. I was discussing CAS with our supervisor today and she said that we can fail if we upload the activity on our Managebac after we have actually done it. This was very abrupt and today was literally the first time she has said this (I am in the second term of IB1) She just said this very casually so I am not sure how serious she was. Now I am very very worried because i tend to upload the reflections around two weeks after the activity so that I have the pictures and stuff to go along with it. This year is also the year our school is going to have examination from the IB so they can be even
  13. For my Business Management EE, I have about 19 secondary sources and 1 primary source. However, many things my primary source said, weren't corroborated by any secondary sources. My secondary sources were mostly used to justify solutions and whatnot. My teachers told me that I should have a mix of primary and secondary sources that state the same thing, but I can't find any secondary sources talking about the issues I discussed about the company I chose. My EE supervisor told me this wasn't a problem, but here we are. Could this issue cause me to fail the EE?
  14. So I ended up getting a really bad mark on my chemistry design lab that brought my mark down by almost 20% (from an 84 to a 65). However, I feel like I didn't do as bad as my teacher graded it. I got a 7/24, but I had done the graphs and the research properly. I have all the components asked in the rubric. The question is, would my IA mark affect my overall IB mark? If so, can I have my lab being regraded by another teacher?
  15. I'm taking my third chance for re-take this May, throughout the school year some teachers thought that we were able to retake one subject up to three times, but they didn't say the actual retake amount. So, without knowing this I didn't take the one subject that I failed until now, my last chance. I'm certain I'm going to fail it because I have been working, not studying as much. I have already been in contact with a few good universities in the US, which said that they do not care about my IB diploma they only want the SAT results. That was before I knew I was going to fail, does
  16. Well, things are getting confusing these days... I think that maybe I am too involved in my extracurriculars that I didn't really pay attention to IB. Or partly because of my ideology. I believe that passion, creativity and individuality are much more important than test scores. This semester I continued to do well on my Alchemy project: I now have 600+ followers, several good Alchemy project publications, and several good features. (Like I got one from Chinese Academy of Sciences and recently, C&EN (chemical and engineering news)). But my grades are dropping and I think maybe I
  17. Hi guys, I’m writing to you to ask for some help/ advice. 

For the last 3 weeks I’ve been struggling with a serious thought of not taking the exams. I’m supposed to take the May 2017 session in Biol HL, Chem HL, Eng B HL, Maths SL, Hist SL and Polish SL and I really want to study medicine in the future. However, I have some serious problems:
 - I didn’t apply to England as I thought that the Netherlands would be a better idea. Then, they changed their admission procedures and I decided also not to apply and try next year with this year’s results. At this moment I can only try to get
  18. I recently did my IOC and I failed terribly. I'm not even expecting higher than a 9/30 and I am traumatized for life. I am not a literature student but I am hoping to at least boost my total IB score, however this is already a downer for me and I don't think I'm gonna get even a 5 in Language A. Is there any way that I can save myself or counter this disastrous result from getting me lower than a 5 in Language A?
  19. I was just called in by the principal to talk about my grades. My semester 1 reports shows that I achieved total points of 31 excluding bonus points, and semester 2 it dropped to 26 points. He recommended that I consider dropping my IB and just get into college with a regular diploma. Im thinking of going to school in Canada. What do you guys think? My teachers think that I can regain my points in the beginning of 12th grade and I think so too and I would hate to be the only one not taking IB while all my friends are.
  20. Guys, I feel terrible before the exams- all previous year I was preparing to the important boxing championship, so I didn't studied anything in Biology, and our Economics teacher is just terrible- on our mock exams no one had more than 4! But the biggest problem is Biology, I don't remember and actually understand anything. I wonder if anyone has some useful links for preparation to Biology?
  21. Or at least....I am so goddamn scared I'm going to. My Math IA was due tonight and I turned it in but it's so bad. I am so terrified that I will not graduate (or more realistically, I will graduate but without my IB diploma.) I know people who usually say this are people who realistically, are doing much better than they think but that's not me. Seriously, I used to be a good student but I've become this horrible procrastinator to the point where I put off real LEGITIMATE IB-DIPLOMA necessary **** like TOK essay to the day before. Like ****, my CSS profile I am submitting tomorrow and i
  22. First of all, congratulations to those of you who have been awarded the IB diploma! And to those who were not, remember that you did a great job regardless! Anyways, I was lucky enough to become a diploma recipient with a score of 28. Naturally, I became curious about everyone else, so I asked my fellow classmates and even surfed through social media to see how the other candidates did. I rarely saw scores under 30. Many were mid 30s, others 40s and I even saw quite a few 45s. Everyone seems to be relieved and overcome with satisfaction now that their "two years of hard work finally paid off
  23. So I just got my results in earlier today, and it is absolutely heart wrenching. I always had trouble doing tests in exam conditions. I am a massive procrastinator and just can't concentrate. I always get distracted by the simplest of things. I do Film HL, Human Factors Design HL, Philosophy HL, Chinese B SL, Maths SL, and Eng Lang SL. I got a 4 on every subject in SL and in two of my HL subjects... But I got a 3 in Philosophy. So I got a 23 + 1 from the TOK/EE. So I have a 24 in IB. But because my HL subjects add up to 11 and not 12. I failed my IB Diploma, and will not receive it.
  24. HI, I am creating this topic because of the amount of contradicting information on the subject. I have completed the May 2014 exam session and passed. I chose to retake two subjects in May 2015 session. Bottom line is that exams start very soon and I am not prepared (various causes, don't want to go into detail). I have had a passing grade for both of these subjects. I am afraid I might not do so well this time around. Will the higher grade out of the two examinations be the one which is my final score? Will me failing the upcoming examination have any impact? What would happen
  25. So my teacher screwed me over by not giving me proper corrections and my math exploration ended up being too simple and quite bad. I am pretty certain that I am going to fail it, and at worse I will get an 7 on it (at best around 12). Could I still get a 5 in my final grade? My grades have been a consistent 5/4-5/6 in practice exams.
